What to Expect

What You’ll See

When you come to church, you’ll be greeted at the door and given a bulletin (like a program for the service). Feel free to sit anywhere in the sanctuary. There are no reserved seats, and everyone will be glad you came.

What We Do

We will praise God together through our worship. When we meet together, the most common way we do this is by singing songs of praise to God. We will sing some older traditional songs, and some modern songs. The most important thing is that we are singing to God, our Father. He is the audience for our praise.

We will pray together. Sometimes we’ll pray for the sick, perhaps for those who don’t know Jesus, or for our country. No matter what the need, we’ll come to our God who loves to hear from his children (No one will put you on the spot and ask you to pray out loud before others).

We’ll listen to the pastor proclaim some of God’s word, the Bible, to us and explain what it means and how we can apply it to our lives.

Children’s Ministry

We have a children’s ministry that meets during the service. If you are a visitor with children, you’re welcome to send them to the children’s ministry or to keep them with you.

Music

We sing some traditional hymns with musical accompaniment (piano, organ). We sing some contemporary worship songs as well. The most important thing, of course, is that while we sing, we are glorifying God in our hearts.

Dress

Dress as you prefer. You’ll find some in the church dressing formally and some dressing casually. You’ll be welcome no matter how you choose to dress.

People

At our church, you’ll find people of all ages and of many different backgrounds. Everyone is welcome. “Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.” (Colossians 3:11 NIV)

Non-Christian Visitors

Our worship service isn’t oriented toward Christians or towards non-Christians. It’s oriented towards God, from a group of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, creator and savior. We welcome non-believers to come, visit, see what we’re about, hear the word of God, and we welcome questions after the service.
